Hormone replacement therapy addresses many types of symptoms
Men and women have very different physiologies, but both require hormonal balance to feel good and function well. Because hormonal imbalance can trigger a broad range of symptoms, it is often misdiagnosed and not treated properly. Dr. Adam Maddox and his team at Thrive are experienced in developing individualized hormone replacement therapy programs to alleviate many types of symptoms.
Symptoms of hormone imbalance in women
Females are prone to hormonal changes at many times through life – puberty, monthly menstrual cycles, menopause, aging, and stress. These fluctuations can result in:
- Hot flashes
- Night sweats
- Vaginal dryness
- Mood swings
- Impaired mental focus and memory
- Low libido
- Weight gain
The effect of low-T
Beginning at puberty, testosterone deepens a boy’s voice, puts hair on his chest, builds muscle mass, and develops penis and testicular size. Into adulthood, this male hormone is vital for bone strength, muscle maintenance, and sex drive.
However, after about age 30, must men experience a decline in testosterone, with far-reaching effects such as:
- Reduced interest in sex
- Difficulty achieving and maintaining erection
- Low volume of semen
- Hair loss
- Loss of muscle tone
- Increase in body fat
- Decreased bone density
- Mood changes
Solutions for both genders
Thrive offers bio-identical hormone replacement therapy for women. This approach uses synthesized hormones from organic sources such as soy and yams, that match those produced by woman’s body. These plant chemical extracts are micronized for easy absorption. Along with some healthy lifestyle changes, BHRT can stabilize hormones.
After thorough testing, Dr. Maddox may recommend testosterone replacement therapy for men. This pelletized treatment uses naturally-sourced bio-identical testosterone. It restores male vigor, without oscillations common to other forms of low-T therapy.
